Delaware Township contracts with the Town of Fishers for its fire protection and emergency medical services. Fishers Fire Department is one of the best in the State and managed by the City of Fishers.
Our township will collect property taxes from those within the red areas and then just writes a check to the city. Today, that might not make senses.
These red area are un-annexed, state law places Fire and EMS responsibility on the Township. Given we really don't do too much other than collect the taxes and pay the city, seems to me not to make much sense.
Delaware Township should be allowed to focus on only what it might do best, township assistance for those who are desperate.
